Actress chides journalist for accusation of “shameless” shilling.

“Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria, in Australia this week for a SpecSavers promotion, was accused by a Sydney Morning Herald journalist of “shameful” shilling for wearing the brand even though she does not actually need glasses. Longoria shot back on Twitter that she had worn reading glasses since 2013 — while she was studying for a master’s degree, she points out — and chided the writer for shoddy research. “If you had done your journalistic duty (it’s actually not that hard, a more thorough Google job, or one phone call to my camp and they could have provided you with the documentation) you would see that I have been wearing reading glasses since May 3, 2013,” the actress posted. “So next time you want to write an article calling someone ‘shameful’ why don’t you do your research because that is your responsibility as a ‘journalist’ and the Sydney Morning Herald should hold you to that ‘high’ standard even though you are just the Lifestyle journalist. It sounds like you need some glasses yourself,” she added.
